KaceyTron hits fellow Twitch streamer Greekgodx with most backhanded compliment of all time

Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has been hit with one of the biggest back-hand compliments ever seen from Kacey ‘KaceyTron‘ Caviness, after describing his rise in prominence on the platform. 

The Twitch personalities were involved in a three-way discussion with another Twitch streamer, Mizkif, who was streaming the entire thing on his own channel for people to watch. However, nobody could have expected what KaceyTron was going to say next. 

While she might have started out talking about how Greek’s rise in popularity on the streaming website was so inspirational – having built up a channel that now has over 800,000 followers – her impression of how he got to that point never went down so well. 

Mizkif, InstagramMizkif was broadcasting the podcast via his twitch channel, which has over 200,000 followers.

“I just want to ask Greekgod a question. So, uh, I think that your rise to fame has just been really inspirational and interesting,” she said. “I’m not saying this in a derogatory way at all but I think you really took leeching to a whole other level.”

KaceyTron added: “You made me realize that being a leech isn’t a bad thing and there’s actually an extreme art to it. Some of your content where you were like leeching was some of the best things I’ve ever seen on Twitch. You know what I mean?” 

For those who haven’t heard of the term before, “leeching” is often to used in the online community to describe streamers – or content creators – who jump on the coattails of another personality who has a larger reach than them, in order to expand their own. 

While that might sound like a smart strategy for small and upcoming personalities to use, not everybody appreciates being labelled as such. 

When asked if he knows what KaceyTron was getting at, Greekgod simply responded: “No. Thanks,” before she suggested that he goes back to leeching in the future. 

It might have sounded a bit heated in that brief interaction but the three streamers involved in the podcast quickly laughed it off, moving onto other topics.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
